Best Home Form for 40 Years

That's us 6 straight league wins at home. That is the best run of home form since Fergie's team won 8 straight (Oct '76 - March '77). The league-winning team of 67/68 and the cup-winning team of 1926 also managed 8 in a row.

Conveniently, if we won every home league game this season then we'd beat the (unbelievable...) 18 home wins on the bounce which occurred between April '35 and March '36.

Another wee stat is we're now 11 home games unbeaten in the league. That's the best run since MacPherson's team went 17 unbeaten through the whole of '05.

 

 

Great info but if we lose our next home game in the league, you will be getting the blame for jinking us  :rolleyes:

What league were the "8 in a row" games in?

The old First Division, so the same level as we're at now.  We beat Morton, Falkirk, Arbroath, Queen of the South, Dundee, Dumbarton, East Fife and Clydebank.

We also managed a 4-1 win against Dundee Utd in the Scottish Cup mid-way through the run. So 9 home games won in a row, which we will match with another win on Saturday (fingers crossed).
